What about a hot glue gut or a small stitch of thread?

I think a small stich would be the best bet.  If you used fishing line people probably wouldn’t even notice, and it would be nice and sturdy!

My concern with hot glue would be getting a rigid look where the glue is.  Stiching could be time consuming… but that’s what bridesmaids are for!

I was going to say sew them on using clear fishing line. 

That is a time consuming DIY project, but if that’s what you’re looking for, go for it!  (and post pictures when you’re done…I’d love to see how it turned out!)

hollybeary… I have the same issue and I have recruited my BMs and we are attaching them with fishing line.  We need 75ft of aisle runner so bw the 6 of us, we all get a section and attach.. I am hoping it doesnt take forever but we have to do it too bc our venue doesnt allow "loose" petals either … Be sure to share photos!! This seems to not be in the DIY bulletins all that much.  Good Luck!

I’d go with hot glue or spray glue.

this is an interesting topic.  i’d like to know how this is done since my venue also won’t allow a mess with petals.

I ditto the fishing line but I think the glue gun will be faster and depending on the # of petals, it may look okay.

We have the same restrictions at our venue and the final verdict was the hot glue gun. We took a section of our runner and used fishing line and hot glue gun… and the hot glue worked perfect, it attached very secure and we were able to better place them rather than the fishing line (if you wanted to strategically place them).

I told all my BMs and MOB / Mother-In-Law to get their glue guns ready and we are going to go to a local church and lay the asile runner out and get to gluing hundreds of petals…I told them all, we have to do what we have to do and everyone agreed.

I even told Fiance I was going to arm him witha  glue gun too !!

I will be sure to post a pic when we are done..

How about fabric glue? As the hot glue will leave marks on the petals most likely!

I was thinking maybe glue dots?

As you may have noticed, I have a love affair with hot glue. That gets my vote!

I would love nothing more than to buy one… but at 350 for just 25 feet… there are not too many brides who can afford that.
